Deadline for ICLS 2016 Mid-Career Workshop Approaches- December 18th

The Mid-Career Workshop is an opportunity for researchers in different contexts to connect to scholars in the Learning Sciences, reflect on their previous work, share concerns and ideas, receive mentoring on topics of their choice, and strategically plan for the next phase of their careers. The workshop will run for one day during the pre-conference events. The organizers will structure the day to accommodate the specific needs of the cohort. Ideally, participants should be at least 6-10 years post doctorate, planning to go up for tenure, or have already obtained tenure. This is a great opportunity. Donít miss out!
